Some new informations and documents from the history of our beloved corp. appeared on the Atari Museum portal.
AMY 1 is a digital, pipeline architectured, additive music synthesizer chip. There are 8 voices maximum assignable with a total of 64 harmonic oscillators, available in groups of two, for voice assignment. AMY 1 has 72 independent, piecewise linear envelope generators: 8 fundamental frequency envelopes and 64 harmonic amplitude envelopes.
A monster, not a music chip... that was to be placed in the Atari XE. Why it did not happen and what was it capable to perform, you may read in the article about Atari 65XEM There's also full AMY 1 documentation (in PDF format).
What else? In the article about Atari 1200XL there's a lot of information about Sweet 16 - as it was initially named (in PDF format).

Wydaje mi się, że additive można by tu przetłumaczyć na dwa różne sposoby i ja nie wiem, który byłby poprwany...
